Exosomes, small-sized extracellular vesicles, carry components of the purinergic pathway. The production by cells of exosomes carrying this pathway remains poorly understood. Here, we asked whether type 1, 2A, or 2B adenosine receptors (A1Rs, A2ARs, and A2BRs, respectively) expressed by...

Allosteric antagonism by bitopic ligands, as reported for many receptors, is a distinct modulatory mechanism. Although several bitopic A2A adenosine receptor (A2AAR) ligand classes were reported as pharmacological tools, their receptor binding and functional antagonism patterns, i.e., allosteric or competitive...

Mast cell degranulation triggers hypersensitivity reactions at the body-environment interface. Adenosine modulates degranulation, but enhancement and inhibition have both been reported. Which of four adenosine receptors (ARs) mediate modulation, and how, remains uncertain. Also uncertain is whether adenosine reaches mast...

Plasticity at excitatory synapses can be induced either by synaptic release of glutamate or the release of gliotransmitters such as ATP. Recently, we showed that postsynaptic P2X2 receptors activated by ATP released from astrocytes downregulate synaptic AMPAR, providing a novel...

Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are multidrug-resistant pathogens for which new treatments are desperately needed. Carbapenemases and other types of antibiotic resistance genes are carried almost exclusively on large, low-copy-number plasmids (pCRE). Accordingly, small molecules that efficiently evict pCRE plasmids should restore...
